Myeong-dong and Lotte

At H's suggestion, I took a stroll in Myeong-Dong (a shopping district in downtown Seoul) today...

Krispy Kreme Donut -- I know it's hard to see, but if you look closely, you'll see that trademark Krispy Kreme green/white logo, don't know why but donut stores are HUGE here... Dunkin' Donuts is actually a hip hang out place in Korea.. funny huh, the image of Dunkin's in America is that of a hang out place for cops with early morning shifts, but here in Korea, it's frequented by trendy teenagers. Muahaha, those girls don't know Krispy's is our secret conspiracy to make the Asians fat :-)

Stopped by a Gelato place... all the servers there are young men, they were totally flirting with all the starry eyed Japanese tourist ladies.

Lotte Plaza, an upscale dept store, is right across from's kind of similar to the Galleria Lafayette in Paris in that the food section is humongous and has many different food stations.

Mochi Station! I wanted to pinch all these perfectly shaped mochi buns!

Kimchi Station! Wow, it seems everything is Kimchi-able.

The person to the left gives you an idea how huge these crabs are!

Pretty pastries... see the cute little persimmons?

Food food everywhere... alright, I am exhausted now, gotta get up early tomorrow to go to the DMZ...Kim Jong-il, here I come!
